1. If Suicide is criminal, it must be a transgression of one's duty either to God or the health of one's society as a whole.
God: Suicide is no more a rebellion against God than is saving the life of someone who would otherwise die. One's own despair is bound to lead to death by an external force either way.
Society: A man who retires from a life that has come to a stall, does no harm to society. He only ceases to do good; which, if it be an injury, is of the lowest kind.
